Available now, Clinchfield Railroad Scenario Pack 01 delivers authentic and challenging railroading on the Train Simulator Clinchfield route!
Known for creating highly realistic railroad scenarios based upon actual railroad operations, High Iron Simulations delivers authentic and challenging railroading experiences in “Clinchfield Country” – with the now available Clinchfield Railroad Scenario Pack 01!
The “Rex Turn,” “Elkhorn City Mine Run,” “First Moss Turn,” “McClure Shifter,” and the “Florida Perishable” …. these are among the realistic railroading operations that await you in the ten all-new career scenarios of Clinchfield Railroad Scenario Pack 01!
With Clinchfield Railroad Scenario Pack 01, you’ll venture to America’s rugged and magnificent Appalachian Mountains and climb aboard CRR’s classic EMD F7s and GP7s and second-generation SD40s and GP38s to experience coal-country railroad at its best, including:
  • Tackling the tough southbound climb from Elkhorn City with a ponderous train of coal loads delivered to the Clinchfield by the Chesapeake & Ohio and, with a lash-up of second-generation EMDs, making the memorable and scenic run to St. Paul, Virginia.
  • Handling set-outs and switching at mines and tipples along the CRR main line from Dante to Splash Dam as you work the challenging “Rex Turn” with a mix of first- and -second-generation CRR Geeps.
  • Working the “Greenbrier Turn” with vintage CRR GP7s and picking up coal loads along the twisting and rugged Greenbriar (Haysi) Branch for movement south to Dante.
  • Taking the throttle of CRR’s stylish F7s as you serve as engineer on the “First Moss Turn” bringing a heavy train of coal loads off the Fremont Branch bound for Dante.
  • Answering the call as engineer of an SD40-powered train of coal which originated on the Louisville & Nashville and, via Norfolk & Western trackage rights, is entering the CRR at St. Paul for the run north to Elkhorn City and a hand-off to the C&O.
  • Serving as engineer of an “Elkhorn City Mine Run” to collect loads from the coal docks alongside Elkhorn City Yard, then making a dawn run southbound with CRR EMD GP7s.
  • Highballing the hottest train on the Clinchfield – CRR Train 97, “the Florida Perishable” – as you hurry northbound with priority tonnage off the Seaboard Coast Line.
  • Delivering empties and pulling together coal loads at the sprawling McClure Mine on the New McClure Spur as you work the “McClure Shifter” with a set of Clinchfield’s workhorse EMD GP7s.
Over the full length of the Train Simulator Clinchfield route, extending from Elkhorn City, Kentucky to St Paul, Virginia, Clinchfield Railroad Scenario Pack 01 takes you to yards, mines, and tipples including Elkhorn City, Dante, Splash Dam, Jacob’s Fork, Clinchco, McClure, Nora, Ruth, Trammel, and Boody Junction. Note: This scenario pack requires Train Simulator’s Clinchfield Railroad: Elkhorn City – St. Paul route.
Experience and enjoy ultra-authentic Appalachian railroading at its challenging and memorable best – with High Iron Simulations’ new Clinchfield Railroad Scenario Pack 01, now available at the Steam and Dovetail Games Stores! – Gary Dolzall
With High Iron Simulations’ new and now-available Clinchfield Railroad Scenario Pack 01, you’ll tackle ten new career scenarios that deliver ultra-realistic and challenging railroading on Train Simulator’s popular Clinchfield Railroad route! With CRR GP38 2008 on the point, the “Rex Turn” passes Dante’s First Baptist Church. Screenshots by Gary Dolzall.
Known for creating realistic railroad scenarios based upon actual railroad operations, High Iron Simulations has created career scenarios that capture the best of Clinchfield railroading in the Appalachians. In the two-part scenario “Chessie Coal South,” you’ll handle a lash-up of CRR second-generation EMD power for the tough climb from Elkhorn City with a train of coal loads delivered to the Clinchfield by the Chesapeake & Ohio.
Making setouts, pick-ups, and switching the Clinchfield’s many coal mines, tipples, and loaders is challenging work re-created in multiple career scenarios of the new Clinchfield Railroad Scenario Pack 01. In the two-part scenario “The Rex Turn (above), you’ll work at mines and tipples along the CRR main line from Dante to Splash Dam with a mix of first- and -second-generation CRR Geeps, and in the scenario “Greenbriar Turn” (below), you’ll gather coal loads along the twisting and remote Greenbriar (Haysi) Branch.
In the scenario “First Moss Turn,” you will take the throttle of CRR F7s as engineer of a heavy coal train brining loads off the Fremont Branch bound for Dante (above), while in “L&N Coal North,” you’ll be called for an SD40-powered train of coal which originated on the Louisville & Nashville and, via Norfolk & Western trackage rights, enters the CRR at St. Paul for the run north. CRR 3013 and kin have just passed through Sandy Ridge Tunnel (below).
Venerable first-generation Clinchfield diesel power will be your charge as you work switching duty at Elkhorn City Yard and then head south with GP7 power in the career scenario “Elkhorn City Mine Run” (above), and in the scenario “Train 97, The Florida Perishable,” as you climb aboard CRR F7s to highball the hottest train on the Clinchfield northbound with priority tonnage off the Seaboard Coast Line. CRR F7A 801 makes for a classic sight as it exits a tunnel at Clinchco (below).
Delivering empties and pulling together coal loads at the sprawling McClure Mine on the New McClure Spur is the task at hand as you work the scenario “McClure Shifter” with a set of Clinchfield’s workhorse EMD GP7s. “Shifter” was CRR’s term for locals.
The sun is setting in “Clinchfield Country” as the “Florida Perishable” makes its way through the magnificent Appalachians. Experience and enjoy ultra-authentic Appalachian railroading at its challenging and memorable best – with High Iron Simulations’ new Clinchfield Railroad Scenario Pack 01, now available at the Steam and Dovetail Games Stores!
